Shrimp Fried Quinoa Recipe

I started making this recipe several years ago, and then perfected it when I found the Maple Soy Sauce recipe in the cookbook “From Freezer to Table”.

We also make this recipe with chicken which is another one of our favorites.

I especially love this recipe because you can throw all different kinds of vegetables into the mix based on what you do or do not have on hand.

This recipe is naturally gluten free, and you can easily choose a vegan butter in the sauce to keep it dairy free as well. I am telling you this recipe is a win-win for everyone.

This recipe makes enough for our family of 5 and then I typically still have several quarts to freeze.

Bon appetit!

    1. I’m interested in this recipe but I’m confused with the mention of chicken in several of the directions since it’s not included in the ingredient list. Could you clarify?

      1. Traci, I’m so sorry that is confusing! It should have said shrimp not chicken. I have updated the recipe instructions, so they are accurate. Thank you so much for pointing that out. This is one of my favorite recipes!! I hope you enjoy it!
